August 20, 2008. It started on this day. As I thought about the future of Kalido, I wrote down what I thought were it’s core assets; it’s people, it’s customers and our ability to support better data throughout the enterprise. I’d recently read some great things from Gwen Thomas at the Data Governance Institute, and […]

Today we announced a significant new partnership with Teradata, the world leader in data warehousing and enterprise analytics. This new alliance will deliver the flexibility and agility of Kalido running on the Teradata family of appliances.
I read this morning Evan Levy’s excellent blog “Blind Vendor Allegiance Trumps Utility.” In it, he laments the number of companies he spoke to at the recent Gartner MDM Summit who identified their leading MDM vendor (based on being a [Microsoft / IBM / SAP / Oracle / SAS] shop) before even defining their requirements.
Last week, Kalido participated as a Platinum sponsor in the Gartner MDM Summit in Las Vegas. Co-chaired by Gartner analysts John Radcliffe and Andrew White, the conference came on the heels of the Gartner BI Summit and gained about 100 attendees from event for a total in the 4-500 range.
This weekend I saw the new animation masterpiece “How to Train your Dragon” with my kids. It’s the story of a group of Vikings living on a remote island being constantly attacked by dragons of different species. When a young boy brings down the fiercest of all dragons, the Night Fury, nobody believes him but […]

Last week, a Customer Data Integration vendor (CDI) announced they were changing the name of their product to “Multi-Domain MDM Hub”, citing that “nearly half” of their customers use their product for multi-domain purposes. That means that more than half use it for only one domain. What is it that makes it so difficult for […]
